Automatic weapon fire could be heard from outside the 190-room hotel, according to reports.
‘Very early in the morning there was gunfire. Apparently it’s an attempt to take hostages,’ a security source said.

‘The police are there and are sealing off the area.’

Witnesses at the scene said attackers arrived in a diplomatic vehicle, and are now ‘walking quietly’ around seven stories of the hotel.
